removing difficuliies arising from obstruc

charm by. strengihensng, invigorating and
restoring the system to a healthy condition
and by briugiog on the monthly period
with regularity, no matter from what caus
es the obstruction may arise. Tbey should
however, NOT be taken during the first
three o; foor months ol pregnancy, though
safe at any. other time, as miscarriage
would be the result.

In view of the attempts of the Republi

General McCIellan, we give the following
testimony respecting his abilities and ser
vices from various members of the Admin
Washington, Jclt 2, 1862.
Major General George B . MeCUllan :
I am satisfied that yourself, officers and
men have done the best you could. All
accounts say better fighting was never

information, .General McCIellan received

A thousand thanks for the relief your
two despatches of 12 and 1 P. M. yester
day gave me. Be'atsnred the heroism of
yourself, officers and men is, and be appre

In August, 1862, Mr. (Lincoln made a
speech at the White House, in which he
Xhere has been a very wide-spread at

McCIellaa and the Secretary of War.

in the very selfishness of his nature he can

Washington, Sspt. 15, 1862 j
Your despatch .of today received. God
bless you and all with you. Destroy the
rebel army if possible, A. Lincoln.
To Major General Geo. B McCIellan.
Bat the Republican Congress also gives
its testimony. On the 16th day of July,
Mr. Edwnrds (Rep.) of New Hampshire,
offered the following resolution in the
House of Representatives, and it was unan
imonely adopted ;
Resolved, That the thanks of this House
be presented to Major General George B.
McCletlan and ihe officers and soldiers of
his command, for the series of brilliant and
deceive victories which by their skill and
bravery they have achieved over rebels and
traitors in arms on the battle fields of West
On the 9th of May, 1862, after the victo
ries of Yorktown, Williamsburg, and West
Point, Owen Lovejoy, the most ultra radi
cal in the Hoose of Representatives, offered
the following resolutions, which were
unanimously adopted :
Resolved, That it is with feelings of de
vout gratitude to Almighty God that the
House of Representatives, from time to
time hears of the triumphs of the Union
army in the great gtruggle for the suprema
cy of the Constitution and the integrity of
Resolved, That we receive with profound
satisfaction intelligence of the recent vic
tories achieved by the armies of the Poto
mac, associated trom their localities with
those of the Revolution, and that the sin
cere thanks of this House are hereby ten
dered to Major General Geo. B. McCIellan
for the display of those high military qual
ities which secure important results with
but little sacrifice of human life.
Let Democrats bear this testimony in
mind, and when efforts are made to be-little
General McClellan's great services to
the State, let this significant testimony of
Mr. Lincoln, Gen. Halleck and the Repub
lican Congress, be produced.
Evert Democratic journal in Ohio (ex
cept the Crisis) is out loathe nominees of
the Convention. The Dayton Empire,
Vallandigham's organ is among the number.
rTbe abolitionists have been looking for him
to oppose the nominal ion, but in this, as in
every thing .else which squints towards
success for Lincoln, tbey are disappointed.
We pity the poor fellows, they are in great
distress. The opposition to McCIellan is
I fntila. The oeoole have seen enough of
J Liocolnism, and the cry is down with the
"Come Back MCleIIan
When the 'smutty joker" dismissed the
glorious M'Clelan from the command of
the army of the Potomac , a touching scene
took place . M'CIellan read the order of
dismissal, "and immediately prepared to
take leave of his brave army. He mount
ed his horse, and rode along the entire
line.' Hie braves supposed hewas review
ing them, and they sent up cheer after
cheer from'every' regiment. Having reach
ed the end of the line, he wheeled bis
horse, and, taking bis cap from his head,
again proceeded slowly along the line.
He gave no word of command, and tears
were in bis eyes. "Farewell, my brave
boys, God bless you ! " were the words he
uttered in front of everj regiment. Then it
was that the veterans composing the army
of the Potomac began to understand what
had taken place; then it was that they
discovered that the remorseless, treacher
ous and ignorant '"Lincoln, had deprived
them of their beloved commander. A
voice like thunder went up. Harkj! "Come
back, M'Clellan.or Goff take, M'CIellan,
These were the words, this the cry that
vibrated all along the lines. Regiment re
sponded to Regiment, and for nearly an
hour the same cry could be heard, 4come
back, M'CIellan 1" The soldiers wept like
children, and so did ibeir dismissed com
mander. Men long accustomed to hard
ships, privations and blood, were unman
ned when told that M'Clellen was to
leave them forever. Napoleon in his
palmiest days never possessed the affec
tion ot bis soldiers in a greater degree than
did M'CIellan possess the affections and
the confidence of the men Wio .composed
the army of the Potomac. Tbey knew
him to be a wise, prudent and brave com

The dismissal of M'CIellan was as dev
ilish as it was treasonable and wicked. It
was not '.because the administration bad
lost confidence in his militsry capacity.
No, no. It was becaase M'CIellan desired
to carry on the war, not for the purpose of
abolishing slavery, but to restore the Un

and for the Constitution as it is, and be

No Room for Hesitation As between
McCIellan and Lincoln therej is no room
for hesitation. Oh what a contrast between
the life and character of the gifted soldier,
ardent patriot, sagacious statesman and true
man, whom we nominated at Chicago, for
the first office in the gift of a free people,
when compared with Lincoln. Whether
you consider his conduct at Churnbusco and
Cheputtapec, bis arduous toils in expedi
tions for the government, his Crimean re
port, his Western Virginia Campaign, bis
organ ization of the Army of the Potomac,
his service at Yorktown, his victory al Fair
Oaks, his masterly movements during the
memorable seven days: his triumph at
South Mountain and Antietam ; his honor
ed and dignified retirement when his dis
grace was attempted by the administration;
in all, you see gleaming with beautiful lus
tre the character of an American,
'Upon whom every god
Did seem to set bis seal,
To give the world assurance of a man."
The best type of our country to-day is
General McCIellan. His dignity under
continued detraction ; his patriotism under
unceasing trials ; his courage under contin
ued ordeals, that csuse the stoutest heart
to quail, his freedom from demagogueism,
his love of his whole country, all, all are
attributes that remind us of the earlier men
of the nation, "the dead but sceptered
sovereigns." Can any prudent man, any
wise or patriotic man hesitate between the
two characters, McCIellan and Lincoln 7

daily in tones that cannot be mistaken.

For the last ten of twelve days, tb.0
Post offices ia the western section of La
zerne county, and the northern portions of
Columbia county, have been flooded with
Electioneering Documents, to the amount
of wheelbarrow loads, all directed to B.
B. Emry, one of the hirelings of Mr. Abra

country is flooded by this kind of trashy
is unknown to the publio in general.-
These documents consists in part of a Bi

few days Mr. Emry has appeared himself
probably to make a judicious distribution,
of those valuable documents, and perhaps
too, of collecting the tax of Two Dollars
from each Postmaster for the "purpose of
defraying electioneering expenses. Tha
Reverend B. B. Emry is the same fellow
who came up from Washington one year
ago, to oast an illegal and fraudulent vote
against Judge Woodward. In the first
place his father, Wm. Emry made ansae
cessful trials to the assessors of several
distriots in Luzerne oonnty to have him
assessed, his residence being at (Poshing
ton. But just ten days before the gener
al election, he came up, stopped with his
father in Fishingcreek two or three days;
then proceeded to Wyoming county, but
was sure to return by the second Tuesday
in October, and there claimed the right to
vote, on a ten day's residence, which was
objected to by znaay,but his vote was final
ly taken by a good natured Democratic
board. He no doubt, will try to play the
same game at the approaching election.
But we caution any board of election from
being again so imposed upon. Under Gen
eral Jackson's Administration, clerks that
went into the States to interfere in their
elections were promptly dismissed, but an
der the present imbecile administration, .
they are encouraged, and paid about five
dollars per day. This fellow does not wear
